There isn't time to be the people we used to be.

There isn't time.

There's only you and me.

No time to be the people we used to be.

We have to be something else.

Disembodied, ethereal, above the fray.

Something more than human. Or less than.

That isn't me. It's not my skin.

My skin is human. But then.....

There isn't time to be the people we used to be.

There isn't time.

There's only you and me.

And all the dreams I had. So human. Dreams that humans dream.

No time for those. No time, you see.

There isn't time to be the people we used to be.

There isn't time.

There's only you and me.

Caught up in the maelstrom. Pulled along by the stream.

Time nonexistent. The dream but a dream.

There isn't time to be the people we used to be.

There isn't time.

There's only you and me.

Separate. Apart. Alone. Forever.

Never the twain shall meet.

But still we see.

There isn't time to be the people we used to be.

There isn't time.

There's only you and me.
